We cost the company an enormous loss. That freighter wasn't cheap. If I was a rep for that company we'd be blackballed. Even though the decision to blow the freighter up wasn't ours, we caused the situation that warranted such an action. Yes, we may have helped keep the corp from garnering Imperial wrath (maybe), but they wouldn't have been in trouble in the first place it we hadn't mucked it up. If we don't get blackballed generally and can't find corporate work with anyone I'd be shocked.
To keep Hardnox happy we'll need to continue to derive income. He's a mercenary, and expects to get paid, and paid well. That narrows mission types a bit.
I'm with Deep on everything else he's said. I'd like to build towards something. We already have a ship, and not a small one. But we need money to replace its weapons, and a black market contact to get them in the first place (I'm now recalling why we didn't get the weapons back when we were on Onderon, Ari isn't a Streetwise/Cunning type character). We need to hire a "scoundrel", someone with underworld skills. Owyn can do in a pinch as he's YGG on Underworld checks, and GGG on Streetwise. But he lacks any special talents in that area, and a '3' ability is no better than the low-end rival-grade NPCs we'll encounter, much less anyone with any moxie.
Ari isn't all that interested in advancing in the Rebellion. (I, as a player, would like to see her get promoted. Repeatedly. But the character doesn't care about that herself.) A reread of the paragraph below her Motivation can be instructive. And this last mission did zilch towards her Duty. So for her, this last mission was a waste of time other than to put a small amount of cash in her pocket. She would do far better to turn pirate or become a privateer (a la my FO game). She'd be doing far more to hurt the Empire and make more money in the process. To hurt the Empire she needs to repeatedly cost them ships, preferably captured. And to do that she needs much better weapons so that she can go after targets that are worth more than puny Sil-4 crap.
